Re: Contest #3 - Grand Tour of the Grand Tours - VOTING

To decide my votes I made a first selection based on the general map and my first impressions. That left me with 8 or 9 routes, and then I just had to look a bit more into the details, and this is what came out eventually: 5th place: sportdani19 Not every stage was to my liking, but I think your tou...

Re: Contest #2 - Benelux Cobbled Classics

I made it my own challenge to make every race have its key-parts in a different region, so a lot of these classics have completely different climbs/cobbles than they do in real life. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the races I made. Men's classics: https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/14121 Wome...

Is a final circuit in Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne a must? Or is just a flat section to get to the finish enough?

Re: Contest #5 - Tour de Pologne improved

My version of the Tour de Pologne: https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/12656 Poland is such a big beautiful country, so it’s a shame the Tour de Pologne always visits the same places. For this reason I tried to move the key part of the race to the Sudetes mountains, while still trying to ...

Re: Contest #4 - Voting

I had some doubts about even voting for this contest. I feel like a lot of people didn’t even try (or simply forgot?) to follow all the rules that were laid out for this contest (18 Merckx-victories, 23 days of racing etc.)... And my personal opinion is that if you don’t follow these rules, I can’t ...

Re: Contest #3 - Voting

Honestly speaking, I think the average quality of entries for this contest was pretty low… I didn’t see much routes I instantly liked, so it was quite tough to pick out 5 Tours which I wanted to give points. I personally had some rules to make my voting easier, some of the criteria I used are listed...

Re: Tour de France 2019

Kruiswijk is still close in the GC. Without Roglic in his team it’s full focus on him, and we have all seen how strong Jumbo is. I’d say he’s in a perfect position to beat Ineos

Re: Contest #1 - Voting

I had some criteria before I looked at the routes in detail: 1) a start outside of Colombia would immediatly make your route drop in my personal ranking 2) stage/transfer distance was very important 3) of course, the altitude I didn't pay too much attention to the routes being practible or not, I ju...

Re: Contest #2 - Sping Classic Renovation

Do we need to keep a look at transfers between races, and keep some in the same region (like the Ardennes classics)?

Re: Contest #1 - Colombia Grand Tour

So, here's my Tour of Colombia. https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/11505 It's clear to see that a Grand Tour in Colombia would be very difficult to organize because of the few roads, and when there is a road it often is of bad quality (dirt roads..). Also the altitude was a thing to keep...
